A Political Gaffe?

It's no secret that Lake County's State legislators all share a ride to and back from Springfield. Your LakeCountyEye would give anything to be a fly on the windshield of the next trip down to the Statehouse. Haha, here's an actual transcript from an actual Chicago Tribune story:
Never give a sucker an even break.After years of lobbing attacks at each other through the media, Sen. Terry Link and Gaming Board Chairman Aaron Jaffe found themselves in a tense face-to-face showdown at the Capitol. "We've waited a long time for this meeting to take place," Link told Jaffe, a former judge and state legislator. "I've heard myself being criticized on TV, radio, everywhere else by you, judge." Jaffe did not back down, at times pointing a finger directly at Link and firing back: "I would say that you have attacked me more times than I have attacked you. You have been absolutely atrocious in that regard." "If I'm atrocious with you in (that) regards, judge," Link responded, raising his voice, "it's because you have whipped the living daylights out of me on TV, stage and screen — and I haven't been on stage and screen."

For those keeping score at home, here is the current betting-line:

Your LakeCountyEye has been told that the OTB betting parlors are open until 11PM in Lake County.

The Springfield carpool van was seen at the Lake Forest Tollway Oasis. An operative observed the driver singing karaoke:
You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.
The van was last reported headed in the general direction of the Hollywood Casino Joliet.
